If you’re buying or selling real property, it’s a great idea to hire us to help you work through the legal and title issues, even on residential transactions. Our fees are nominal compared to the real estate agent’s commission. Real property is often your most valuable asset; we’re here to help protect you and your investment, and make the transaction enjoyable, smooth, and easy to understand.
My practice focuses on real estate, general business, and finance/banking. Whether I’m working on a transaction or a lawsuit, I help my clients through difficult and challenging times, and provide efficient, straight-forward legal advice they can trust. The best compliment from my clients is when they say I took away their stress and made hiring an attorney an enjoyable process.
My real estate practice includes negotiating and drafting leases and purchase and sale agreements for commercial and residential real properties. I also draft, review, and negotiate easement agreements, boundary line agreements, and various documents for homeowner and condominium associations, including covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs), bylaws, and rules and regulations. I enjoy working through title insurance issues and solving boundary line disputes. My favorite part of my real estate practice is helping clients purchase real property, from the moment they make an offer, until they get the keys at closing.
My general business practice includes forming and maintaining limited liability companies and corporations. I also draft, review, and negotiate LLC operating agreements, shareholder agreements, employment agreements, and other corporate documents. I especially enjoy handling stock sales and helping business owners work through ownership changes. I’d love to help your business with its legal needs.
My finance and banking practice includes drafting, reviewing, and interpreting loan documents and commercial loan modifications. I typically represent community banks and other lenders in these matters.
I love college football (roll tide) and Formula 1. When I’m not in the office, I’m usually baking, chasing my toddler around, or planning a home improvement project. I live in Issaquah and spend a lot of time in Vancouver, B.C.
I’m also a member of the Washington State Bar Association, the King County Bar Association, the East King County Bar Association, Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association, and CREW Network. I completed the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce New Executives program in 2018.
